    About to order, any last minute changes?

    Small budget of £200 for the base computer, without OS, monitor, keyboard or mouse. General usage, doesn't have to be amazingly fast, but want best value for money.



    Thanks for any help offered.

    while i agree on not getting hitachi

    DVD drives are all much of a muchness... it either works or it doesn't...

    and you may be able to save a little bit by getting an antec NSKsomethingorother with the earthwatts PSU's, they are decent

    Re: About to order, any last minute changes?

    That's a very good spec, for £200 I doubt you could beat it, except for maybe some refurbished/clearance products.

    So long as you are happy with on board VGA that is a good system. And obviously you can always upgrade it at a later stage Doubt you could do any better

    So from me, it's a well done - seems like you have made some well informed choices. Might be worth looking at other motherboards, XFX and Abit, but that's a matter of choice and preference, but you haven't done too bad there

    PS. I think you should go Hitachi as for £24 its going to be a fairly decent computer, for normal use 160gb should be more than enough and it is easily upgraded or replaced. Plus hitachi made that awesome perpendicular video!!! hehe
